Note: Our practice guides are designed to be clear, concise, relevant to a range of ECEC and school contexts, and relevant to practitioners with different roles. As such, they summarise the research evidence most likely to cover all populations. They do not cover evidence focusing on families with specific needs or specific approaches to home learning during COVID-19. They are designed to be a starting point for reflection and a guide for enhancing future practices.
